GeoSpatialCommunityofPractice Use Cases    (2QG8)

This page contains CANDIDATE use cases. We will indicate the use cases that have been finalized when they are completed and have been selected for the purposes of the GeoSpatialCommunityofPractice.    (2QG9)

A fully formed use case should follow the GeoCopUseCaseTemplate. However, if you would like to deliver a different format and request that someone look at it and potentially put it into the use case template, please contact KurtBuehler.    (2QN4)

  1. Geospatial One-Stop Publishing - GOSPublishUseCase - Publish content (a data set or a collection) to the Geospatial One Stop portal.    (2R3T)
  2. Situation Awareness - SituationAwarenessUseCase - This use case uses an idealized structure of the incident command structure from the National Incident Management System and the National Response Plan to outline the operation of a equally idealized Situation Awareness (SA) system. This SA system is intended to provide situation awareness to all levels of the incident command and coordination structure as syncronously as possible.    (2RTT)
  3. Governmental Units (Boundaries) - BoundaryAnnexUseCase - Develop work processes and technical solution for integrating locally-maintained governmental unit data into federal data sets. Concept includes submittal of accurate digital boundaries of Counties, municipal limits, Census tracts, blockgroups and blocks to the US Bureau of the Census and, as required, State agencies. Locally-maintained data for Census tracts, blockgroups, and blocks will be adjusted to street centerline files and other geographic features.    (2R5K)
  4. Location-based Services Use Case - LBSUseCase -    (2SKO)
  5. Land Use - Develop land use data attributed at the parcel level to support air quality and transportation planning needs for the Charlotte Metropolitan Region. Recommend application of APA's Land-Based Classification Standard (LBCS). Apply by mapping existing land use codes from City and County agencies into the 5 APA classification dimensions. Involve EPA and users groups (such as tax, fire, planning, etc.) at all levels of governments, and others as appropriate, to initiate. Extend parcel-based data model to include point features to accommodate mixed land uses. Demonstrate ability to use one (1) database to meet needs and demonstrate how land use data can be aggregated or processed to meet land use data needs for federal programs such as REVA.    (2R5J)
  6. Communications Assets Mapping - Facilitate use of the DHS Communications Assets Mapping (CAM) tools for the Piedmont Area Communications Council interoperability project. CAM tools developed by SPAWAR for DHS include database design and a web-based application to collect, manage and display information on the location of voice and data technology platform components. Currently, the City of Charlotte Communications Division has developed a Communications Asset Inventory in ESRIís geodatabase format for the purpose of managing communications components. While the CAI data model and initial data inventory is complete, the City of Charlotte currently lacks a tool for field-based data maintenance. Project will (1) demonstrate and apply GML for data exchange in support of the voice interoperability project and (2) enable use of CAM application software for local maintenance of communication assets.    (2R5L)
  7. Roads - Develop work processes and technical solution for integrating locally-maintained road centerline data to meet the business need for regional centerlines (7 county area) for the Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS). Apply GML for schema mapping from each source agency to compile the regional coverage and further, to transfer this seamless coverage of accurate, current regional road data to the NC Dept of Transportation, SC Dept of Transportation, US Bureau of Census (or others) for integration at all levels of government.    (2R5M)
